Things to consider

We have a great benefits offering - 50% staff discount, ability to buy extra holiday, cycle to work scheme. We are passionate about training, we offer a school of adventure where staff can go camping and learn new skills, we encourage staff to get outside and participate in the outdoors with our paid volunteer days.

This year we are having a big festival for staff and customers held in the peak district.

Can business be a force for good? We are not only know for our great outdoor clothing and equipment, we also have a social purpose, as a B-Corp registered company we believe the way we operate is just as important, if not more so than making profit.

About the employer

At our purest we are a bunch of people coming to work each day sharing our love of the outdoors. We set about building Alpkit as a business that we ourselves would want to work for: a vibrant, sustainable brand for multi-sport adventure enthusiasts.

We are predominantly an online outdoor retailer, we also have 5 stores (soon to open an additional 2). Our Campus (Head Office) is based in Newthorpe.
